This is remastered. I was going through the most well-received RA shows on LMA and this one was at the top, so I gave it another listen, and thought that the mids and highs were a bit closed in. It's such a great show that I took a little time and broke out my master files and re-mastered it with Adobe Audition 3.

Remastering Notes:
Adobe Audition: "De-Esser" to calm sibilants
Quick Filter: 187hz: +3db; 375hz: +.5db; 750hz: +1db; 1.5khz: +2.5db; 3khz: +4.5db; 6.5khz: +10db; 16khz:+5db; 48khz: +5.7db

Subject: Excellent remaster!
The original was more than a little flat.
Nice job!

One of the best live Cardinals performances ever. Thanks for the remaster. I didn't think the other version could be improved on, but it was. Thanks!

Thank you so much for the remaster of this amazing show. I hope more people who love Somerville can find this and enjoy it. By the way, spring/summer '07 shows are fantastic.

Sorry, 43 but I'm all acronymed up these days, with a healthy dose of hyperbole, to boot. Anyhow, what a hot show and this SB-take complements the orginally posted recording exquisitely. Kudos!

Subject: hot damn!!!
some guy whined (on the non-remastered review of this very show) about how some of these songs "ain't meant to be non-'coustical". well, i likes that ol' sweet steel guitar on damn near everything, so this show is damn near about as splendid, as i could ever want.
like i mentioned before, this is a remaster of an already great, it just keeps gettin' better.
"thanks" bill, for the labour of love, ya done good!
